The global search is now on for the 2022 Adelaide Fringe poster!
Professionals, beginners, hobbyists and everyone in between are encouraged to submit their designs for this year’s competition which celebrates the diverse and inclusive nature of the Adelaide Fringe, which has been the biggest festival in the world for the past two years.
The design should encapsulate the many unique and rewarding experiences Adelaide Fringe has to offer, on a scale like no other festival in Australia, and it should showcase why Fringe is THE only place to be in February and March.
Free entry, open to everyone
Entry for the poster design competition is free and open to everyone. The winning design will become the face of the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest arts festival for 2022.
Adelaide Fringe Director and CEO Heather Croall encourages everyone to enter.
“We are looking for a poster that captures the huge life affirming force of the Adelaide Fringe,” Ms Croall said. “Adelaide Fringe is a huge explosion of creativity for all to experience; Fringe transforms the city into a magic arts and festival landscape. Fringe fills us with joy and invites everyone to participate in uplifting and unforgettable experiences that transport us to new realms. We would love to see entries from far and wide for this year’s poster.”
$3000 prize money
The winner will receive $3000 in prize money, free registration for an exhibition at Adelaide Fringe and the enormous exposure of becoming the symbol of Fringe 2022.
Previous Adelaide Fringe poster competition winners include freelance digital illustrator Polina Tsymbal, multi-disciplinary artist Dave Court and 2021 Archibald shortlisted artist Matthew Clarke.
Tips for creating your poster
- The winning poster will need to demonstrate flexibility in a number of different ways. This includes being reproduced in different sizes as well in monochrome (black and white). The design must have the versatility to be used in a number of creative applications, including t-shirts, posters, program booklets, banner signage and FringeTIX box offices.
- If you use any images you haven’t created yourself you must own the copyright for the images or have permission to use them in your design.
- Remember to treat the poster brief as guidelines only. Thinking outside the box is relished and encouraged!
The 2022 Adelaide Fringe Festival will be held from 18 February to 20 March.
Entries close Sunday 8 August at 11:59pm.
